9 of the 13 years we've been providing daily picks. .
(We had our worst year ever in 2011 with the
daily picks, although we did quite well with the overall season
projections. In 2013 we once again won the title for
the season projections at baseballphd.net (We have won 3 of the past
4 years). We were
slightly up for the regular season in 2009 but had a terrible
post-season to make it a negative season. We were really down in 2005 and down slightly in 2007).

We offer picks on Major League Baseball games. We use our
copyrighted mathematical model to compute the probability of
each team winning their game on a given day. The payoffs
that betting sites offer imply a win probability (range) for each team

profit). If our computed probability lies outside that range,
we feel it would be profitable to bet on one team or the other.

payoffs of various betting options. In addition, for games in which
the player has choice (for example, in blackjack) we present

count cards at Blackjack, you might even win).
